- Who we are
Located in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Ezistock connects gifted local artists and artisans with a global audience of collectors, decorators, merchants and general consumers. We strive to preserve local artistic traditions and cultures, while advancing sustainability and fair labor practices.
With each purchase you make, you're contributing to the wellbeing of our producers and our global environment. All independent operations meet stringent human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption principles as outlined by United Nations Global Compact. Periodic, unscheduled site inspections further guarantee ongoing compliance as well as fair and ethical business practices.
When you purchase handcrafted goods through our producers, you support hard-working, independent artists and craftsmen, bolstering their quality of life, broadening their opportunities, creating enriching jobs and increasing financial stability. Priority is granted to goods crafted by local families and women along with our disabled and disadvantaged population.
When you invest in our handcrafted goods, you're buying direct from the producer, with independent craftsman determining their own fair market value and managing their online inventory. We strive to maintain prices that are competitive and cost-effective by minimizing the traditional intermediary layers and mark-ups. When you make a purchase from select disadvantaged merchants, that producer will receive 100 percent of all sales proceeds. In the end, you gain one-of-a-kind handmade artifacts at affordable prices, and local artisans earn a sustainable income to support their families.
The artisans supported through each purchase have made a pledge to use only sustainable raw materials along with eco-friendly harvesting and production processes. This includes waste minimization through recycling, energy efficiency practices, and the use of natural and organic materials whenever possible. All natural resources are wholly and naturally replenished.
